Just wondering how long before most people return to work after a tkr? I was thinking that after 2-3 weeks I would resume my life and go back to work and most of my normal activities. After reading some of the discussions this tkr sounds a lot more painful and difficult than I was thinking. I have been through breast cancer twice in the past six years, fractured my llowet back by falling off my mule and two fractures in my upper back due to osteoporosis. I have been thru a lot and this tkr is frightening to me. I can't stand being confined to the house. I take care of young adults and need to be able to chase after them and cannot be on pain meds and working.
I just turned 60 last week. Have any of you gone on disability because of the tkr?
I appreciate your feedback
